Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

I so often dislike things that are similar or practically identical to things that I love. A few examples, my friends:

I dislike lipstick but love lip stain. (This one has grown on me.)

I dislike filing my nails (it feels weird) but love painting my nails. (I’m wearing this color right now.)

I dislike red roses but love spray roses. (Evidence that I’m a girl.)

I dislike raisins. Like, loathe raisins (golden raisins are excluded). But I just LOVE currants.

They’re the same but different. Black currants are cuter, tastier, sweeter, and teeny-tiny compared to big ol’ raisins.

Chewy is cool! Chewy is chic! Chewy is the new black!
